The Office of Small Business, Market Access and Industrial Competitiveness (SBMAIC) develops, negotiates, and implements U.S. trade policy related market access for American manufacturers, and helps ensure that USTR’s trade policy efforts address the challenges facing smaller American businesses. The office works closely with other USTR offices to address key tariff and non-tariff barriers affecting U.S. industrial goods, including through the negotiation, implementation, monitoring and enforcement of trade agreements. The office also leads a number of industrial sector policy initiatives. Across these activities, the office engages in extensive outreach and consultation with stakeholders, including through the Interagency Trade Advisory Committees (ITACs).
